Office – School life

Morning Session 8.55am-12.00pm

Afternoon Session 1.15pm-3.15pm

All pupils have a morning break and Key Stage 1 children have an afternoon break of fifteen minutes.

Pupils are asked to arrive at school between 8.45am and 8.55am. A member of staff is on duty for 8:45am before school. We are not legally responsible for your children until 8.45am. All pupils are registered in the morning and afternoon.

Please make sure your child arrives at school on time. It is very important that good habits are formed early. Being punctual is very important and helps the day get off to a good start. If someone else is to pick up your child please let the class teacher know. Do please try to be punctual, as children can get very upset if they feel left behind.

The children can be ‘dropped off’ by car in the loop at the entrance to the school “DROP OFF ONLY” a member of staff will help your child exit the car to get into the school. There should be no parked cars in this area. If you attend your child into school and arrive at the school by car you can use the parking area at the rear of the school.

Assemblies

At Lower Peover CEO Primary School, the children attend whole school assemblies on four days and a Celebration assembly on the fifth day.

Absences

If your child is absent through sickness or any unavoidable cause, you need to inform the school by telephone in the first instance. As this constitutes an authorised absence a letter is required if your child is absent for longer than one day.

The school has discretionary power to grant leave of absence for a family holiday or visit overseas but you should not, however, expect such leave to be granted as of right.

Permission will not be given if:

  • It is applied for after the visit or holiday has taken place.
  • It is felt that it would be detrimental to your child’s educational progress
  • It coincides with the period of Standard Assessment Tests (SATS)
  • More than ten school days leave is requested in any school year

By Law the school must collect and report details of absences as attendance is a performance indicator. Further information is available from the school.

School Uniform & PE Kit

What a child wears to school reflects his/her attitude to learning, It portrays the school’s ethos and shared positive values. We have a very simple uniform that the pupils are encouraged to wear. For further details please visit the school uniform page.
